Student Veterans Association

Who we are

The Student Veterans Association was established in the spring of 2011 (see our Constitution). It is an organization primarily composed of veterans and veteran supporters. Since establishment, the organization has volunteered with several organizations throughout the community and sponsored the annual Veterans Salute in November.

The Student Veterans Association serves four main purposes:

  • To provide an organization in which student veterans can feel welcomed and receive the help that is needed to assist with transitioning and becoming a more successful student.
  • To raise awareness and provide information about programs which are available to help our veterans.
  • To raise public awareness of the needs of our veterans and veterans’ programs.
  • To raise money for veteran support programs throughout the community.

Transitioning from the military to college can be an overwhelming process for returning service men and women.  The PCC Student Veterans Association is an organization in which student veterans can feel welcomed and receive the help needed transitioning and becoming a more successful student. PCC is proud to serve those who have served our country and is making a continued effort to meet the needs of its over 500 student veterans.

PCC Student Veterans Association would also like to welcome you to come and utilize the resources available to you in our office (Leslie Building – Room 137). We have computers and printers available along with space and seating for you to relax or work on school work.
